A monumental, complex wine for indomitable people.
The Roxanich Sauvage is a mono cépage wine from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape varietal. Sauvage is an all-time member of the Mladen Roxanich Philosophy range, bearing the historical first name for the Cabernet Sauvignon grape.
The word “sauvage” as tasting note illustrates gamy, earthy and forest floor flavors, as featured in the Roxanich Sauvage label: Dark, ripe fruits, plums, black currant, black pepper, cedar and tobacco- a warm autumn evening on the palate. “Sauvage” also references a wine fermented with indigenous yeasts.
The Roxanich Sauvage is bottled without filtration after up to 9 years in large wooden vats and barrels. It’s certainly one of the greatest wines Mladen Rozanic produced, delivering magnificent aromas of candied plums, currant jelly, dried rose petals, blackberry compote with hints of liquorice, medium to deep garnet in color.
Full bodied, rich and mellow, it reveals a layer after layer of spice box flavours. As decadent and varied as a spice market, Sauvage is rich, red and tangy and will be irresistible to lovers of Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wine is incredibly smooth, deep, with well-rounded tannins. The finish is magnificent and continues with length and persistence. There is serious magic in this wine.
